Concerned about a pot-hole? The deer? How about municipal land, parks, pathways and recreation facilities? Or business licenses, the water supply, recycling and waste services, or public transport? If you’re interested in any of these topics, want to have a say in how your tax dollars are designated, or want to see your priorities met in the next four years – this event is for you.
Cranbrook’s public All Candidates Forum will be held this Wednesday, October 29th at the Key City Theatre. Doors will open at 5:30 and the event will begin at 6:00pm. Sponsored by JCI Kootenay, this is a free event open to everyone.
The evening will begin with candidates seeking a position on City Council and the mayoral candidates will follow after intermission. The doors will remain open at all times so attendees can join when they are able.
Attendees will have the opportunity to submit their questions both prior to the event starting and during the event; there will be draw boxes in the Key City foyer to submit questions. Prior to the event, there will also be the opportunity to speak with the Chief Elections Officer about the new automated voting machines.
Note that this year the All Candidates Forum is not televised. However, a few dedicated and talented Mount Baker students will be filming the forum and posting clips online.
JCI encourages everyone to attend the forum to meet, hear from and ask questions to the 19 candidates seeking office this election!
